Health‐Related MDGs: • MDG4 - reduction of child mortality, • MDG5 - improvement of maternal health • MDG6 - reversing of HIV, malaria and other diseases 2. Health‐Determinant MDGs : • MDG1 - eradication of extreme poverty and hunger • MDG2 - universal access to primary education • MDG3 - gender equality and woman empowerment • MDG7 - ensuring environmental sustainability • MDG8 - developing a global partnership for development Looking closely at all the MDGs, we can see that all of these are part and parcel of every nurse's roles in every individual, family and community – the need to care for the totality of man utilizing all powers innate in them.
